9 Wins from 9 Starts

Another 3 wins from 3 starts at Snetterton over the weekend sees points advantage now to over 130 points in the Championship.

"I couldn't afford the time away from work on the Friday, so I had to miss the testing day before hand, and started the weekend on the back-foot." explained Lee,

"But I stuck in a time matching my personal best in qualifying 2 which put me first of the Sound Of Thunder Bikes by nearly 2 seconds.

During the races I was never troubled by the other SoT runners (unfortunately there was only 3 of us out there!), but had some good scraps with the GP1 runners."

Off to Mallory next where I hope the Duke will be a little bit more competitive against the GP1 bikes.

6 Wins from 6 Starts

Another 3 wins from 3 starts at Brands Hatch over the weekend sees points advantage now at 77 points in the Championship.

"I'd not been to Brands Hatch for 3 years" says Lee, " and prior to that I'd not had much time are the circuit, so I wasn't expecting to be able to repeat the performance at Cadwell Park. Lee Cutts-Bland, who is chasing me in the Championship, looked strong all weekend and I didn't expect it to go all my way. Plus local boy (and my buddy) Kevin Jones was riding out of his skin on his prehistoric Suzuki TLR setting his own personal best times round his local track, I expected a fight.
Sure enough in the first race Lee Cutts-Bland (Aprilia), Harry Cole (Ducati 1098) and myself fought it out until around lap 12 where I got passed a GP1 bike and managed to make a small break before taking the flag.

In race 2 Lee Cutts-Bland shot off like a rocket and I knew I'd have to ride hard to keep with him, but he pushed too hard on Clearways whilst tussling with a GP1 bike, lost the front and crashed out.
I knew then just to keep it steady and make sure I didn't though away the points.

For a change in race 3 I got a good start and never felt any pressure (or the sound of any twins behind me) and rode a measured ride to take the win again. Glad to get Brands out of the way and get back to circuits I know well, Snetterton should be good for the 1098, Mallory should be awesome where I hope to be putting a bit more pressure on the GP1 boys!"
